Recently, the South Korean giant Samsung announced the launch of the new Samsung Experience 9.0 beta, which is a part of the Galaxy beta program, as it offers select customers a chance to experience all the new features available through the Galaxy ecosystem.
Good News! Samsung Experience 9.0 Beta Now Available
We spent a few days talking about the possibility that the Samsung Galaxy S8 has a beta version of Android 8.0 Oreo soon. We have good news for all users since this beta has officially arrived at the device.
There is also a bad news and the news is that it is not available in all markets. However, within a few weeks, the download will be available. Android 8.0 Oreo for the Samsung Galaxy S8 is already a reality, although with limitations.
We can not say that the Galaxy S8s are updating to Android 8.0 Oreo since it is a beta that you have to request, so you will not see an OTA coming to your mobile automatically. For this, we will have to wait a few more months until the South Korean giant Samsung decides to launch the stable version for all devices, something that has already announced that it will arrive in 2019.
News from Android Oreo and Samsung Experience 9.0
The new beta update is now available in the United States, the United Kingdom, and South Korea. These 3 countries are the first to have the beta of Android 8.0 Oreo in the Galaxy S8 and S8+. We do not know when, but we are sure that this version will arrive in India in a few weeks, something that happened last year with the Galaxy S7 and Android 7.0 Nougat.
In the beta version we will not only see the Android 8.0 Oreo news, but also the customization layer will be updated. Now, this layer serves the name of Samsung Experience 9.0 and comes with general news that mainly changes the interface of the system.
The internal changes will be done by Android 8.0 Oreo. We will see all the news from other devices, such as the new shortcuts in the icons or the floating window option in compatible applications.
If everything goes as expected, in December we can test this beta on the Indian Galaxy S8, although this is still to be confirmed and are only speculations based on last year’s experience.
To see the OTA of Android 8.0 Oreo stable we will have to wait a few more months. Last year Android 7.0 Nougat came to the Galaxy S7 at the MWC in Barcelona, which is held at the end of February. We hope that this time the thing may happen differently.
